When you see the term "luxury home", what do you picture? Three bedrooms, a big kitchen, a pool. Is it a brick house? Farmhouse? What if I told you that there's a new way to live a fancy life of luxury?

Your new luxury home could be......a Barndominium!

But bear with me! Let's get the basics out of the way first.....because the best is yet to come.

What is a barndominium?

Barn + Condominium = Barndominium

or better known as Barndos.

What's the difference between a barndo and a regular home?

Most houses are built with brick and wood, with 8-9ft, ceilings.  Barndos are made of metal and usually have vaulted ceilings.

Are barndos cheaper to build than houses?

The cost to build a barndo is usually half the cost to build a home.  But keep in mind, the rising costs of everything including metal and steel affect the cost of these homes.

What's better than a luxury bando?

How about a whole bunch of luxury barndos? Move on over, The Colonies, we've got The Barndos of Looby Acres setting up a lap of luxury.

LOOK: One of Amarillo's Hottest Barndominiums!

Barndominiums are all the rage--and they've been all the rage for quite some time around these parts. See, Barndos take all the practicality of a livelihood that many Panhandle residents keep and combine it with all the accoutrements that make a home a home.

This lovely property located at 751 Plantation Rd is the perfect example of a Texas Panhandle barndominium. Take a peek!
